Invest in Lasting Memories

Personalized photography that celebrates your story

More than just photos – it’s all about the experience you get working with me.

It’s not just a photo session; it’s an adventure we’ll go on together. With every click of the camera, we’re telling your story, not just taking pictures. My aim is for you to feel comfortable, heard, and have a blast. The experience with me is about capturing real joy and unscripted moments you’ll remember with a smile.

From our first hello to the final product, I’m with you every step. We’ll ensure your photos are as memorable and delightful as the experience itself. It’s about creating a space where you can be yourselves, and I’m there to capture the magic. Let’s make your session a fun part of your story, not just a day on the calendar.

This page gives you a peek into the session experience and pricing, but there’s so much more I’d love to share. I invite you to connect with me directly. Let’s talk about the moments you want to capture, the stories you want to tell, and how we can bring your vision to life. Reach out, and let’s start the conversation that leads to capturing your memories.

I offer lifestyle photography for:

Thoughtfully crafted, my sessions artfully narrate your family’s remarkable story.

I understand that investing in a photo session is a big deal, both in terms of time and money. It’s important to find someone who not only appreciates how special these moments are but also tailors their sessions to ensure an outstanding experience for you. Here’s what you can expect from mine:

Regular communication and guidance from beginning to end.

An online consult to connect, and chat styling + session details.

Detailed styling process with client closet access.

Artfully edited images delivered in a convenient online gallery.

Print and product credit, so you can see you beautiful family every day, and not just in digital form.

Erin is a kind, fun and professional photographer to work with. When I look at our family portraits, my heart is so happy to see how they turned out despite us rangling our wriggly-wiggly-worm daughter. During the session, Erin came prepared to ensure she had the attention of our daughter so she could capture her pretty face in the photos. She even made sure that my husband and I got photos of us as a couple. I would recommend Erin because her energy makes for a easy-going session where you and your family can be yourselves. We couldn’t believe the time flew by like it did because we genuinely enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be using Erin again in the future. 🧡

Where do I start?! Working with Erin from start to finish was nothing but pleasurable. She is extremely personable and her communication through out from initial booking until receiving the final images was immaculate. During the actual session she made me feel so comfortable and confident and really listened to what I wanted while maintaining her artistic style. I love my photos and will remember them forever! If you’re wondering if she’s worth it, she is!

Erin is hands down the best outdoor family photographer in Bowie! She captured my little family so beautifully and was great with our 4 yr old. Her style is so beautiful and she knows how to get all the genuine smiles and connections -- getting family photos of us at our best, loving selves.

Got to do a newborn photo session with Erin today and it was an awesome experience. I normally hate taking pictures, and hate photography sessions, but Erin made the two hours breeze by. She was super easy to work with, knew how to get the right photo without too much effort, and was super accommodating. If you are in need of photography services, I highly recommend her.

Erin Link is amazing to work with - she's super responsive, thoughtful, professional, and her photographs are just stunning. I'm in such awe of her ability to capture beautiful pictures. I had a maternity photo session with her and look forward to booking her in the future to capture our families moments. Her turnaround time is great and she's very reasonably priced. If you're looking to get high quality beautiful photographs - hire Erin! She is an incredibly talented photographer!!

pricing

A separate, non-refundable session fee* is due at the time of booking. This fee allows me to customize your full experience and secures your session date on my calendar.

By separating the session fee from the option to purchase specific pictures later, you can tailor your experience to your preferences and budget. My passion is to offer a personalized and enjoyable photography session, ensuring your memories are captured just the way you want them. It’s all about your photos, your way!

GOT SOME QUESTIONS?


I offer lifestyle photography services for family and motherhood portraits (this includes maternity and newborn sessions). I like to take a relaxed, and natural approach during my sessions. While I do pose my clients, I try to do so in a way that doesn’t feel too forced or non-genuine. As for my editing techniques, I love bright and well-lit photographs; full of color.

Working as a preschool teacher for 10 years and a mother for 5 years has provided me with valuable skills that I have been applying to my family photography since 2020. I am familiar with supporting children and understand how to engage and connect with them, resulting in natural and authentic family photos. Additionally, I have learned how to create a comfortable and relaxed session environment, which is essential in bringing out the best in each family member. Overall, my experience working with children and families, combined with my photography skills, makes me a great fit for families looking for a photographer in Annapolis.

I charge a (non-refundable) session fee, which covers my time and talent, as well as any pre-session consultations and post-processing of your images. No digital images or products are included, and the session fee is NOT applied to your collection cost.

After the session, I offer a selection of collections you may purchase, separately, so you can choose what best fits your needs and budget. They include a certain number of digital images plus a complementary print credit.

I take great care going over all of your images and spend some time looking through to narrow down your gallery to the best of the best images. Because my sessions are moment based, I pick the best moments to edit and share with you. I do guarantee at least 40 images in your gallery to choose from. I do not release RAW or unedited images.

Absolutely! We will work together to choose a location from a list of my preferred locations in the Bowie area including places like Kinder Farm Park, Patapsco State Park, and Beverly Triton Nature Park. Locations that are not listed or have a drive time beyond 30 minutes from 20715 will be subject to an additional travel fee (this is a nominal fee to allow for addt’l gas, driving, and scouting time), and possible permit fees.*

*I do not currently offer sessions at Monuments/Memorials in Washington DC/Alexandria.

My outdoor sessions are scheduled for sunset (and occasionally sunrise). I do not shoot midday as it doesn’t align with my artistic preferences. (I know in the spring and summer months, this is often past kids’ bedtimes. I want to reassure you, that with some minor adjustments, I find that young children almost always do very well; regardless of the later time. Don’t let this fear alone prevent you from booking.) Studio sessions are scheduled around 10 am.

For ALL sessions: I recommend getting on my schedule a minumum of 2 months ahead of time. My session dates are limited and fill up quickly. This also ensures we have ample time to plan and acquire any permits and necessary outfit pieces.

Addt’ly for newborn sessions: We’ll schedule for around 2 weeks from your expected due date. Once you and your baby are home safe and sound, please contact me immediately to let me know the wonderful news. I will work closely with you to find a day and time that works for everyone. I aim for about 2-3 weeks** after birth. I only accept 4 newborn sessions a month.

Addt’ly for maternity sessions: I recommend that mamas schedule their session at the beginning of the third trimester. Right around 30-35 weeks.

**Why do I book your newborn session 2-3 weeks after birth?

  • Family Comfort: Parents (and older siblings) are more relaxed and comfortable with their new routine.
  • Better Complexion: Babies have improved skin tones and fewer blemishes.
  • Established Feeding: Feeding routines are more stable, whether breastfeeding or bottle-feeding.
  • Flexible and Sleepy: Babies are still flexible and sleepy enough for beautiful poses.

Based on my experience booking 2-3 weeks after birth sets the stage for a smoother session and beautiful, serene images.

Yes, sunset light is beautiful. But overcast skies provide lovely even light and can add a layer of emotion, too. What’s most important to me is that I highlight your family’s loving connections; I want that to be the focus in your images. I will of course prioritize the best weather for your session, as my schedule allows. I will not reschedule for humidity, cloudy skies, wind, or rain earlier in the day. I will reschedule if it is actively raining/storming during your session. My Weather Policy
 

If I feel we need to reschedule your session, I will reach out to you NLT 4 hours before your session.

Please reach out to me to reschedule if you or your kids are sick. As a mom as well, I want to prioritize my family’s health and protect my children from sickness too. Plus we don’t want to document you all looking sick in your pictures. Take time to get better, and we will absolutely make up your session.

I love spending time with my clients and providing galleries that highlight beautiful and emotional family moments. This happens much more naturally when we allow time and space for it during a full session. I do plan to offer very special mini session events a few times a year. I recommend signing up on my email list, so you can be first to know when these become available.
